Ok, so I looked through my footage and found some weird instances of my shots doing no damage and producing no hitmarkers - even though the enemy models flinch. I have recorded a total of 4 occurrences, although I know it has happened at least one more time (Pearl Market, don't remember the gamemode, but I remember parachuting down from a roof and unloading into a guys chest only to do no damage). All the events I have recorded occurred shortly after spawning, so in light of that I think it is likely that is when the bug is triggered, as opposed to my earlier theory about parachutes (thinking back I think I may have spawned shortly before parachuting down during the Pearl Market incident). I previously thought the last two events (Op locker) was just the server acting up, but now I don't know.

I edited the events together, they can be seen here. The events were recorded between August 12 and 14; I don't remember when the event on Pearl Market happened. It's possible that this is two different bugs: during the first two videos the guns don't produce sounds while firing, but during the last two clips you can hear my gun firing. And just to clarify: all these events have been on the live version of BF4.

Edit 1: I just noticed the first two clips are from CTE. I didn't notice the watermarks earlier and for some reason Shadowplay saves CTE videos to the BF4 folder, despite it having generated a CTE folder. I'm not sure how interesting the first two events are now.

Edit 2: The thing in the first two clips just happened to me on a live server. I tested and it persisted through a reload, but disappeared once I switched weapons. I will upload it ASAP. I've uploaded it here . I've looked back at the raw footage and I died while shooting just before the first two events in Video 1 and before the event in Video 2.


I've had this happen a lot and so far only on the AR160. Notice how you don't have any gunshots. Firing animation plays but you aren't actually firing.

This is the heart of these "disappearing bullets."

Firing, but not actually firing.

had it happen before DT release(i think 2 or 3 months ago) and i clearly remember that my gun worked fine,just no hitmarkers nor damage,but there were the bullet decals on the walls of locker iirc.

I had something similar yesterday. I had way less hitmarkers than I should have, but damage was still dealt. Do not know if all hits registered but I got a lot of kill assists, without any hitmarkers or only a few. Same with RPGs.

Yes, it's quite odd. I get bullet decals, enemies flinch and blood splatters but no damage is dealt, no audio plays and I get no hitmarkers. I wonder if the receiving players get hitmarkers, but it doesn't seem so from the (lack of) reaction of the enemy player in the third clip in Video 1, but then again that might be another bug.

From watching my footage back it seems that getting killed while firing and then spawning triggers the bug, and switching weapons cancels the bug. There might be more things that factor in.

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

I should probably post this here as well:

New "fall patch" hitmarker is definitely bugged when using MBT coax HMG. The hitmarker is not reliably showing up when hitting infantry targets at basically any range but seems worst at longer ranges against people headglitching or partially head glitching.

Basically it's flat out not appearing on hits that are definitely damage dealing. I've killed numerous guys without getting a single hitmarker, full health, 2-3 shots to kill scenarios. I haven't really been able to keep track of how often this happens to any real degree of precision but I'd estimate it's happening about 30% of all damage dealing hits vs infantry.

I think shooting infantry with IFV sabot generates the same problem but I can't really comment it's regularly failing here.

There is DEFINITELY a "reduced bullet damage"-bug. Until today I thought it was just a feeling, but indeed sometimes bullets do way less damage than they should do.
I shot someone in close quarters with an ACE 21, hit him 6 times and got 6 regular hitmarkers, but did only 46% damage. A similar thing happened to me with AWS, AEK, Shotguns (although hard to prove for these), MG4, even with sniper rifles.
